Almost Time For Carpenter

Slated to hit country radio April 13th, Mary Chapin Carpenter’s long-awaited single release “Almost Home” was penned by Carpenter, Annie Roboff and Beth Nielsen Chapman, both of whom penned the Faith Hill monster hit “This Kiss.” The commercial single will also feature a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s 1984 rock hit “Dancing In The Dark.” Dixie Chicks gals Emily Erwin and Martie Sidel recently showed up to root Carpenter on at a radio showcase in Nashville, where Vince Gill joined Chapin on stage to play guitar — not sing — only in Music City.
